("Premier" or "the Group")

Mandatory Conversion of remaining Convertible Bonds

31 July 2018



Premier announces that its wholly-owned subsidiary Premier Oil Finance (Jersey) Limited ("POFJ") intends to exercise the mandatory conversion option in its 2.5 per cent Guaranteed Convertible Bonds due 2022 (the "Bonds"). The exercise of such option will automatically and mandatorily convert all of the $28.772 million outstanding Bonds into approximately 31.4 million new ordinary shares of Premier. POFJ has delivered a notice (the "Mandatory Conversion Option Notice") to holders of the Bonds to confirm the exercise of such option and the actions that need to be undertaken by bondholders in respect of the mandatory conversion.

Post the mandatory conversion the Group will have no convertible bonds outstanding. The transaction will further reduce debt in line with Premier's current stated objective.
